“We are proud to work with Jetcraft Commercial on a global leasing solution and welcome them to the DHC community as a launch customer for our newest aircraft, the DHC-6 Twin Otter Classic 300-G,” said Brian Chafe, Chief Executive Officer, De Havilland Canada. “With the same rugged airframe, the lighter weight DHC-6 Twin Otter Classic 300-G will deliver increased payload range and decreased operating costs for our customers. De Havilland Canada is once again driving the utility transport aircraft market forward.”
“We believe that the DHC-6 Twin Otter Classic 300-G represents the best in-class commuter aircraft solution,” said Raphael Haddad, President of Jetcraft Commercial. “This versatility enables the aircraft to operate into areas where regional aircraft cannot go and provide air connectivity there.
